Caterpillar CB-114 Double Drum Roller: Key features
The CB-114 double drum roller boasts of a Hatz 2G 40H engine that can deliver up to 19.7hp (14.7kW). In addition to that, this machine has a fuel capacity of 22L, and an engine oil capacity of 2.5L. It has a drum width of 800mm and a diameter of 575mm. Its wheelbase is at 1430mm, while its ground clearance is at 195mm. Lastly, it can go up to a maximum speed of 8 km/h. For some, these specs may not be the first choice of operators. However, given that the CB-114 is such a compact machine, I’d say these are more than enough to accommodate your rolling and compacting operations.
Of course we’re aware that the operations in this industry are not the easiest. That’s why in order to boost the productivity of our operators, we need to make sure that they feel at ease in their workstation. Well, Cat has got your back with the incorporation of the adjustable suspension seat that has an armrest and a retractable seat belt.
Aside from that, the steering wheel comes with a steering knob that allows for easy maneuverability. Furthermore, there’s an easy-to-understand instrument panel that promotes functionality. Finally, there’s the standard ROPS that you can even lower without using any tools for easy transport. Basically, the roomy station plus the low profile hood and overall design offer optimum visibility to the drum edges of the machine. Ultimately, this ensures safety as well.
Caterpillar integrated rubber mounts in order to isolate vibration and to enhance the vibratory capabilities. Aside from that, there are sprint-loaded self-adjusting scrapers on each of the drums. Because of the fixed position of the scrapers, there is a prevention of material build-up. Lastly, there are corrosion-proof components in the CB-114 to improve longevity and reliability in the operations.
